The Transformative Leader

January 20 2023

What is the Transformative Leader Programme?

This unique and award-winning programme was originally created in response to some of the key challenges facing our Senior Leaders in our Public Services during the Pandemic.  The programme has since been continually evolving in supporting leaders to deal effectively with the realities and challenges of leadership, including uncertainty, stress and anxiety, the isolation of the role and the desire to transform our Public Services for the better in systems that are often resistant to change.

The Transformative Leader Programme is your opportunity to join a group of senior leaders across Northern Ireland’s public service to share experiences and challenges, build relationships and partnerships and spend time with passionate, driven, outcome focused individuals

We bring together exceptional senior leaders, to explore effective approaches, frameworks and support systems for leading yourself, leading others and achieving more of the outcomes you want with confidence

The programme uses approaches developed from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Systems Thinking, exploring habitual patterns of thinking, communication and behaviour in yourself and others and how small changes can improve outcomes and increase your ability to understand, influence and engage more effectively with stakeholders, colleagues and your team.

Who is it for?

If you want to evaluate and enhance your leadership approaches, seek out new thinking and experience an insightful personal journey of positive change for yourself and others, then the Transformative Leader is for you.

If you are considering or have identified that personal resilience, having a range of practical leadership tools and techniques, clarity of skills and strategies in how you make a difference or that your level of influence and confidence and your personal or professional growth is important to you, then this could be the journey for you.  

If you want the support to effect real change and continue to make a difference, we would love to hear from you.

The Programme - What does it look like?

Involving a total of 28 hours learning and collaboration over 6 months, the programme will provide access to a practical set of skills techniques and principles for dealing with the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of leadership, enabling participants to become more effective in life.

Key elements of the programme include: -

•An In-Person Welcome Session and Closing Graduation

•5 Virtual Group Sessions (2.5 hours each | 1000 - 1230)

•3 Individual Coaching Sessions per delegate

Ongoing Support Including our Alumni Programme

Coaching sessions do not provide counselling, psychotherapy or mentoring and this is also made clear during the coaching sessions. If it is apparent that a different approach would be more suitable or appropriate, this will then be signposted by the coach.

There are 10 places available on this course.  Places cost £2,750 + VAT per participant for CEF members organisations and £3,250 + VAT for non-member organisations. Please see brochure attached for further details & how to apply.

CEF operates on a cost recovery basis, therefore cancellations must be made 5 working days in advance of the event or the full fee will be charged for non-attendance, unless a suitable alternative delegate is nominated.
